A Modern Take on an Ancient Tradition

Social Media Reverse Advent Calendar Celebrates the Season with Humankindness

LAS VEGAS, December 1, 2020 – This holiday season Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican is offering a modern take on an ancient tradition. 

The Advent Calendar, a tradition dating back almost 200 years, is a special way many families count down the days in anticipation of Christmas. Each date on the Advent Calendar has a small window, behind which would be a small treasure – a picture or sometimes a small gift or chocolate.

This year St. Rose Dominican honors the tradition by creating a daily digital version with a modern twist for our turbulent times. The Hello Humankindness Reverse Advent Calendar can be accessed by computer or smartphone and suggests small acts of kindness followers can pay forward each day to help brighten the season for friends, family, and colleagues. 

Daily acts of kindness are quick, simple, and spread the spirit of the season. Daily suggestions include: 

  • Share a smile with someone you don’t know
  • Send a positive text message to a friend or family member 
  • Sort through your old towels and donate them to a local animal shelter
  • Reconnect with a friend you haven’t talked to in a long time

The Hello Humankindness Reverse Advent Calendar utilizes hospital Social Media channels, making daily check-ins quick and convenient. A new suggested act of humankindness will post each day from December 1 until Christmas, making it easy to follow and share. 

Help us brighten the season. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram:

Together, we hope to make the 2020 holiday season merry and bright for everyone around us.
